Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Season 1 is available now, but players aren’t impressed

While Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League wasn’t a bad game at launch, it’s safe to say that it was a disappointment. And those hoping that it might be turned around somewhat with the arrival of its first season of content might be left disappointed again.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League Season 1 is available now. It’s a free download for those who own the game, and it includes a wealth of content including new missions and a new playable character in the form of The Joker. Of course, with The Joker already being dead in the Arkhamverse, it’s an Elseworlds version of The Joker, who’s perhaps a little bit different to what you’d expect. For example, he uses a rocket-powered umbrella to propel himself through the air.

While the idea of new missions and an additional playable character sounds neat, however, those who have dived into Season 1 of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League generally haven’t been left impressed. For one, you can’t play as The Joker from the outset of the Season 1 content unless you pay real money for him. To unlock him for free, you have to effectively complete Season 1 by beating Brainiac yet again.

That wouldn’t be too bad if completing Season 1 didn’t involve grinding the same mission types that players have already have enough of during the campaign. And the fight against Brainiac is also a let down, pretty much being a rerun of your fight against Green Lantern. To go through all that and then there being nothing left to do but go back to grinding missions as The Joker is a bit of a kick in the teeth.

So, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Season 1 is out now. And while it allows you to unlock and play as The Joker, for free, it’s wholly underwhelming. It’s a shame, too, as The Joker is pretty fun.
